Dear Mr Gravil 
 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST 45061 
 
Thank you for your e-mail of 16 August 2017, in which you ask for information regarding UK Border 
Force coastal patrol vessels.  The full request is detailed at Annex A.  Your request has been 
handled as a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  
 
I am able to disclose Border Force bought eight (8) x  BP ARRC's, later renamed as coastal patrol 
vessels (CPV's) from Delta at a total cost of C£1m, these being all of the eight ex-BP vessels.  As 
at today’s date, we have no immediate plans to purchase more. 
 
The general particulars are readily available on the internet, please see the following link: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMC_Active.   
 
We can confirm that the CPV's will be operational in UK waters.  
 
Yours sincerely

Subject: Freedom of Information request - UK Border Force Coastal Patrol Vessels 
 
Dear Home Office, 
 
I respectfully request details as part of a Freedom of Information Request regarding the new UK 
Border Force coastal patrol vessels, four of which are called Active, Alert, Eagle and Nimrod. How 
much have these vessels cost to procure from BP and what are their general particulars (length, 
breadth, draught, range, power, etc)? How many are planned to be bought from BP in total and 
where will they be based? 
 
Yours faithfully, 
 
Keir Gravil
